That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Heidelberg. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Heidelberg vacation can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In Germany you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Hertz. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz does require a deposit when you book your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Hertz.
Heidelberg definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental at another Hertz. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
